Today’s episode has it all: An alarmingly passionate discussion about the state of horror cinema, new Blu-ray and PSN releases for April 14th, 2013 (and yes, I can confirm that Injustice: Gods Among Us will be available day one on PSN!), and a new batch of listener letters with a bonus hot-sauce survival tip. After the show, stick around for a Bioshock Infinite spoilercast in which we try to unravel the riddles of Ken Levine’s new opus. Bon appetit!

Sid, was it Net Yaroze you were thinking of? and was that mention of lunch with Jeff a HINT of a guest blogcast visit? don’t tease us like that!

Interesting discussion on horror games/films. The only horror games I enjoyed were Silent Hill 2 and Siren 1 on PS2 because they had the most eerie atmosphere I’d ever seen, when you’re immersed in environments like that it really gets to you in ways no monsters/enemies can no matter how scary they are, it’s all about creating sinister environments. The Walking Dead game was great because of the connection with the characters more than the horror side.

@Sid

I don’t know if it’s a typo, but on the description it says “PSN releases for April 14th”. I take it you meant April 16th?

Also, those spend 50$ get 10$ vouchers should be arriving tomorrow – no specific time. They should’ve added that small notification on the store update.

Loved the show, love Bioshock. Thanks again.

“He’s only Shuman” – how profound! All we need now is a name for Nick’s beard – how about “Suttner’s Mill”?

STTNG – Add the two-parter Chain Of Command to that list (I know, an episode spanning two episodes isn’t a big deal anymore in this age where episodes can span 13 episodes or more, but back over 20 years ago when your recording devices were unreliable and on-demand was completely nonexistent, this is what would thrill viewers)

Elizabeth DOES get stuck in doors (or at least a gate). I went through one of those store closed gates you lift. After coming back out, she didn’t walk out when Booker looked to the left to watch her. She got stuck walking against the inside of the gate. I could see her legs through the gate. I even took an elevator to another area, where she was stuck in the elevator. She wouldn’t move, or do anything.

Then went back up, and she went right back to the gate and ran back and forth in front of it like a crazy person. Like so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g66dDAc3l0c

when are you going to fix the message system for vita’s facebook. it has never worked for me. one time my fat ps3 erased me and my brothers accounts and you guys said there was nothing you could do. we were never refunded for everything we bought on PSN. I expect more from Sony if i’m to buy a PS4.

Nick, I disagree with you. Horror films don’t need to be more intelligent. Like Sid says, they do one thing, and they do one thing well. Immersion. When they start trying to be something more, they lose a lot of what makes them so special. My spoiler-free for instance would be “Cabin in the Woods” which is a horror movie that’s been deconstructed. Once the audience is “in on” the premise it stops being scary and the audience becomes empowered to enjoy the action. To sum up, an intelligent horror movie ceases to be scary, and therefore is part of a different genre.

Whoops, I typed my last comment before you guys talked about Cabin in the Woods! Cheers!

Hey, love the podcast and the Playstation brand.

*Spoilers* *Spoilers* *Spoilers*

BUT: Elizabeth didn’t die. Are you kidding me?! The Elizabeth who was with you, stayed, because they broke the circle and every other possible Elizabeth were eliminated. So every Elizabeth faded away, but not your Elizabeth.

Just seeing the fear in the commentary now, two days after the fact.

Let me allay the fears:

* The podcast will continue, even if I have to do it by myself (I can do a pretty good Suttner impression)

Modifications:
* Weekly Cast could be ‘live’, using ustream or similar technology

Sid, I love the amount of information you guys put out in the podcast. I actually get more information from you guys than I get from my own work place (unnamed games retailer). The one thing that your show always lacks is a true passion and real sense of back and forth between you, Nick, and whomever your guest is for the week. You may not end up reading this at all, but if you do, PLEASE take the time to really listen to this podcast you just did for yourself. This is the passion that the others have been missing. What will it take to bump up the ratings on your show? It was in this particular podcast. Find that passion and you have magic. Amazing podcast, don’t sweat the circle jerks who are going to give you crap about not talking about video games that much this time around.

It would be wonderful if you guys could bring some of the Irrational staff to talk at length about Bioshock Infinite for a spoilercast. Wonderful show this week and I am always happy that it is about an 1 hour consistently.
